Training horses is about respecting and understanding the mental state of the horse, then training them based on their personality and their ability. Not every horse is mentally or physically capable of doing a 30-foot slide or jumping a 5-foot fence. But most can be a good partner, as long as we have a realistic understanding of their mental state of mind and their physical abilities. If you have goals that don’t fit your horse’s mental and physical abilities, perhaps you need to divorce your horse and get one that is a better fit. Life is too short and this “hobby” is too expensive to force your horse into a partnership for which he is not suited.

Skills acquisition is 80% student effort. Only 20% comes from the teacher. Even so, if the teacher for some reason is obstructed and unable to give her full 20%, the student cannot learn all by himself and there's a big chance he will fail. One might think he only has himself to thank for every success. He might say he never learned anything from his teachers. The truth is, maybe he is unaware he is actually being taught by someone else. He is just too busy being conceited. That someone maybe very good in selling ideas because he made that person believe the ideas came from him alone without any influence or help from others.
